The company has developed different robotic systems able to assemble a full range of very small components from 5 µm to 3 mm with a large set of materials : silicon, glass, metal, polymer...
In precision industry, as quantities increase, manual assembly operations become critical because operator attention can't be maintained a whole day. Automation brings precision, repeatability, and 100 % checking, 24 h/24 h.
The company is able to design and manufacture high quality custom made robotic systems for mass production. An original flexible architecture enables to reuse each developments from proof of concept, pilot run until final version for production.
These robotic systems are based on 4 different core technologies :
- smart manipulation by using grippers or tweezers with ultrasensible force sensors to avoid the damage of the manipulated parts and provide haptic feedback,
- vision technology with high depth of field for automated calibrations, 3D modelling and placement,
- high precision robots combining accuracy and high speed rate,
- in house software : specific architecture designed for flexibility and modularity of robotic systems.
The company keeps its technology up-to-date and is always screening new possibilities to add functionalities in the automatised process.
These tasks are numerous, it can be cutting, sticking, soldering, liquid dispensing, measurements of dimensions, force, temperature...
A totally new approach is offered helping companies to reach new industry challenges (4.0 Industry) by managing parts thanks to RFID tags, and monitoring production from a mobile phone for instance.
The French company is a spin-off of a world known research institute and sourced from a internationally microrobotics team. It is now growing and has its first machines running in industrial environment. The SME is now willing to cooperate with new industrial partners willing to automatise the unrewarded, but difficult part of the work.
Ideally the targeted companies are in the precision sector as micro-electronics : microsystems, MEMs (microelectromechanical systems), micro-photonics. It also addresses the needs of companies that want to rethink their automation process or to relocate in Europe their manufacturing capacities.
